Stylish Blogger Award

Wow..I'm new to blogging and I received this award!   Very cool indeed.  Mahalo Marelie from Cookie Droplets Etc.. for recommending me.
 As a recipient of the Sylish Blogger Award I am supposed to tell 7 things about myself and nominate 15 others for the award, so here goes......

1- I love to bake. Yeah probably not a huge surprise since I have this blog, but there you go anyway. ;-)
2- Family is the most important thing to me.  My husband and my kids are the reason I live..and bake!
3- My family moved to Maui, HI  2 1/2 years ago.  We sold 99% of everything we owned and set out on an adventure, one that held many unknowns since we had to find work and start rebuilding everything we had left behind on the mainland.  It has taken time, but we have now built our construction business into a thriving one and are enjoying our life here in paradise.
4- I have been an insulin dependent diabetic for 18 years.  Many people ask how on earth I can bake the things I do and not eat them.  I really don't eat much sweets, but I am allowed to indulge at times as long as my blood sugars are controlled.  ...and I prefer fresh made bread anyways!!
5- My dog and parrot are apart of our family.  We all go for walks and my parrot rides on my dogs back....pretty amusing sight.
6- I no longer take life so seriously.  I used to, but not anymore.  I have learned to enjoy my life, my family and whatever the day brings me.
7- I love people.  This past year I have been on a journey to look at the hearts of people instead of what I see on the outside.  It is so easy to make a quick judgment when we don't know someone and I am as guilty as the next person of doing this.  But I am striving to make that apart of my past and not my future.

I recommend the following for the Stylish Blogger Award based on how much I enjoy their blogs.

1- Mandy's Recipe Box
2- Cheat Day Cafe
3- This Chick Cooks
4- The Sisters Cafe
5- Smithalicious
6- Stephanie's kitchen
7- Envy My Cooking
8- SugarDerby
9- Wilde In The Kitchen
10- Joy The Baker
11- Your Cup Of Cake
12- Hungry Girl Porvida
13- Ellie's Favorite Recipes
14- Brown Eyed Baker
15- Back To The Cutting Board

Enjoy life, Love people, Keep baking
